The Jersey County Fair is wrapping up its 8 day run with motor sports as the featured attraction this weekend. Two different groups of tractor pullers start the weekend, and the always-popular demolition derby wraps up the fair tomorrow night. The smashing starts at 6pm Sunday.
Jersey County Fair Board President Phil Ringhausen says the Saturday night entertainment features the tractor pullers from the national touring organization.

Sunday is one of the larger demo derbies in Illinois. Admission to the fairgrounds is 2-dollars per person, with kids 12 and under admitted free, but there is additional cost to enter the grandstand. It’s $15 for the tractor pull and $10 for the demo derby. For a complete schedule of events, click here: http://www.jerseycountyfair.com/
